CEED Lending is an initiative of the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council (WBC). Providing business expansion financing, and small business loans to start-up and existing enterprises owned by women or men in the following nine southeast Michigan counties: Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, Washtenaw, and WayneLoan amounts vary from $5,000 to $50,000.  

We have made more than $8 Million in loans which created more than 1,800 jobs. As one of the first microlenders in the U.S., we understand that small business owners typically need more than financing. That’s why all of our loans come with free technical assistance – a business growth manager who works with you to grow and sustain your business.  

CEED Lending is committed to standing hand in hand with small business owners to ensure success. We don’t just lend money; we help build strong businesses. Our goal is to help owners take their small businesses to the next level.

Visit the SBA Microloans, for information on small business loans in other counties or states.

Our strategic partners listed below agree that financing is a critical need for small business owners.
